My iPolitics article for this week is about the Calgary flooding - and what else we need to be preparing for.

I've been working on a group blog about marginalized identities in post-secondary education, and we just posted this week's first article. Do some reading about making bisexual identities more visible in academic research!

Okay this is legitimately fantastic. And has totally rekindled my Quora addiction.

(It doesn't say in the description, but the answer is from Justin Trudeau.)

I think I figured out one of the things that skeezes me out about Google+. Is there any way to make it more difficult for people to find you? It's nice that I can impose restrictive privacy settings on all my posts, but I don't want to know how many strangers out there are adding me on Google+. Somehow I feel like that's what Twitter is for.

Ya, that function and the Events function are missing from G+. Those are the functions that make FB practical. It's especially frustrating since Circles would make event invites a snap.

So ridiculous. It seems like these patents are being granted without consideration of what the patent system is actually for: to compensate inventors who spend time and money in development, and then to share that newly-created idea for the benefit of the public. 
 
You really shouldn't be allowed to patent this:

Trying out Google+ again, now that the community's more established. Any tips on things that are more likely to make me stick around?

Love this. For so many aid projects, an injection of money may do nothing - or worse, create new problems that are sometimes worse (see food aid to Haiti that's had spectacularly harmful effects on their local food production capacity). There are always unexpected consequences with aid programs, but this one actually looks like it is accomplishing what it set out to do.

Extra-appropriate to be shared on Google+?
